Russia Warns U.S.
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. Andrei Vishinsky warned thai
United Nations adoption of an American resolution backing Unified
Command negotiators at Fanmunjom would lead to collapse of the
fruce talks and expansion of the Korean War. The Soviet Foreign
Minister said the United States knew in advance that these terms
would be rejected by China and North Korea.
Vishinsky called for creation of a UN Commission to include
Russia, the United States and Communist China. He suggested that
Britain, France, India,. Burma, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, North
and South Korea be included.
He charged that the United States wanted to keep the war going
and expand it in order to gain control of the world and increase the
profits of "American billionaires." He said the problem of repatri
ation does not exist. The real problem is, he said, that the American
command resorted to bayonets to extract from the prisoners a re
fusal to be repatriated.

Joseph M. Dodge, Detroit banker, were named as assistants by Presi

Truman administration out of Washington and replacing it with that
of Eisenhower.
Lodge, as chief liaison man, and Dodge, as envoy to confer with
budget officials, were empowered to sit in on high-level administra
tion policy conferences and report back to Eisenhower.
Lodge, who was defeated for re-elected, is regarded as a likely
choice for a cabinet post. Ho has been mentioned for Secretary of
State. Dodge, according to Eisenhower associates, will probably be
named Director of the Budget.
State Senators To Meet
LINCOLN State senators and senators-elect will meet Wednes
day at the statchouse to study recommendations of Legislative Coun
cil committees studying state government. The Council, composed of
members of the Legislature, cannot pass laws but can make recom
mendations for consideration by the Unicameral in January.

PERSONNEL CHANGE . . . Marilyn Moomey (standing) explains
the duties of Union Activities Director to her successor in the
Union office, Margie Holdeman.
Margie Holdeman of York, is
the new Union Activities Direc
tor. She replaces Marilyn Moom
ey, who is leaving her position as
director to be married.
Miss Holdeman received a
Bachelor of Arts degree from the
University of Colorado in 1947.
After graduation from Colorado,
she was YWCA director of the
Young Adult Department in
Washington D.C. She also held

should enjoy the movies being
shown in Morrill Hall, Gallery B
at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
The films are the work of a
Scotch-Canadian artist, Norman
McLaren and are distributed by
a Canadian film company. They
offer the viewer the unique
privilege of seeing what he is

McLaren has conceived the idea
of drawing abstract pictures of
sound. No camera is Involved in
making the movies. The sound
track is put on the film first. The
sound track is a series of light
and dark lines along the side of
the film with varying spaces be
tween them. Every sound 'has its
own peculiar pattern. McLaren
works with clear film on which
the sound track has been made.
By looking at the sound track he
determines what sort of abstract
design would appear to the eyes
as the vibration sounds to the ear.
McLaren's designs are drawn
on the clear film with pen or
brush, using celluoid dyes, pig
ments or Ink. Designs may be
on one side of the film or on
both sides. Film is painted one
frame at a time. The several
films range from five to ten
minutes each in length. The en

tion Service in Washington D. C.
During the last year, she has
visited Chicago, Washington D.C.
and New Mexico and attended the
Lincoln School of Commerce for
several months.
Miss Holdeman said she likes
her new job very much although
it still is rather confusing. "I
hope I can do my best to make it
a successful year for the Activi
ties Office," she said when asked
her plans for the future.
Those who remember "Fanta
sia," may recognize some of the
abstract designs used in that Hol
lywood production as comparable
to those used by McLaren. The
films have titles such as "Loops,"
"Hen Hop," "Stars And Stripes"
and "Begone Dull Care." "Hen
Hop" features square dance music
to which the designs move in
rhythm. "Begone Dull Care," the
most recent of the films done by
McLaren which is being shown,
features the music of the Oscar
Peterson Trio. The movie is an
expansion of "Fiddle Dee Dee,"
also included in the series.
The rrovies, which received their
initial showing Sunday, represent
a new experiment in cameraless
movie making.
